HaptX gloves aim to make you feel virtual reality

Posted on Friday, March 02 2018 @ 14:55:12 CET by

One of the problems with virtual reality is that no matter how real the animation looks, it doesn't quite feel real if you can't touch it. A company named HaptX aims to tackle this issue with haptic feedback VR gloves.

The product still looks a bit crude but the promises are impressive. Via over 100 points of feedback across your palm and fingertips, these gloves let you feel the shape, texture and motion of virtual objects. Additionally, up to five pounds of resistive force feedback can be deliver per finger, enabling you to feel size, weight, and impact.

If this works as advertised, it sounds like a big improvement:
In watching the video below, and if you're like me, you'll be grinning ear to ear from the way the guy in the video reacts to the physical sensation of feeling water in his palm, and all the legs of a spider, individually processed. HaptX has done this by building a hand that includes force feedback, which simulates density of objects you're picking up, alongside around 120 individual pressure sensors that offer full tactile displacement of objects, size, and weight feedback. Physics of objects touched in the simulation are pretty much believable.
